BuildEngine can't be set inactive in v7.0.1

Alex Akilov (663) | asked Sep 01 '20, 11:37 a.m.
Trying to set a build engine inactive using the following snippet:

IBuildEngine buildEngine = buildClient.getBuildEngine(buildengine.getId(),monitor);
IBuildEngine toBEdeactivateWorkingCopy = (IBuildEngine) buildEngine.getWorkingCopy();
toBEdeactivateWorkingCopy.setActive(false);, monitor);

Although the setActive doesn't report any issues, the build engine continues to stay active after the code executes.

Any ideas?

The build engine process (like JBE) might remain alive in the build machine but it will not take up any build requests. In the Eclipse/Web UI, you should see (inactive) next to the build engine id.
